Well folks, a very belated Happy New Year to you all, hope you’re going to continue to read my mental meanderings throughout the coming seasons!

Photographically, the weather hasn’t been very inspiring lately and the camera hasn’t been out of its bag since before Christmas but this morning I was invited to visit a new quarry with flickr friend Neil; I didn’t need much persuasion as I’m always eager to pursue two interests at once, photography and industrial archaeology. The location this time was a small quarry near Heol Senni within the Brecon Beacons National Park. Although the morning started off well and was sunny as Neil drove us there, by the time we arrived the clouds had descended and we were in amongst them. It did make for some rather atmospheric shots though, here’s a couple from our trek!
